Critics lined up Thursday to cheer the felon who assaulted Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, claiming that the neighbor who had put a sitting U.S. senator in the hospital was a patriot.

The attacks started after Paul submitted a question in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and Chief Justice John Roberts opted not to read it. The reason given was a concern that the question might reveal the identity of the whistleblower.

Paul responded by releasing his question publicly anyway.

Paul’s detractors took to Twitter to attack him, and many did so by cheering the neighbor who, in 2017, attacked Paul so viciously that he eventually had to have a part of one of his lungs removed.

The attack left Paul with bruised lungs and six broken ribs.
